for the engineer or engineers who could do this testing work. >> president fong: commissioner moore. >> commissioner moore: i assume the majority of people sitting in this room know that mr. saltar is a person to go to; over a large period of time, he would be the man as an independent expert witness or as of this moment associated with the other side who could not only tell us what building performance creates different noise levels. or noise transfer. i would have to ask that given his expertise is judgment would guide me and perhaps this commission as an independent expert. it is about not just noise transfer; also objectively looking at the performance and the workup of the building to respond to additional noise levels. so in the future they can perform at a level acceptable to either side. changing from what it is to what is desired to be. and what is possible with an older structure. it will determine how much it can be. is a science on its own which results in being tested by the entertainment commission with its instruments. given the limitations of the existing bui

moore. : >> i think i was less focused on right or wrong until i saw this diagram. this is really what turned the discussion for me about saying is this location necessary? is this location desirable? and i've come to think that it isn't. i know myself that the advantage of smaller hardware stores actually neighborhood by neighborhood reflect the type of building need to replace a doorknob or specifically difficult older plumbing fixture, et cetera, is served by though experts like here who have been part of the fabric of the city for a long time. and there are many formula retail stores who don't understand what your issues are because they just don't carry that any more. then, too, some kind of a form ulaic 20 washers, [speaker not understood], i'm not saying that is necessary and desirable somewhere else, but i don't think it is here. it is my continued real concern about to individually support and support the mixture of smaller business in san francisco because that is what makes our city livable. and that is for these people and all levels of society form that kind of social fabr

children by his side. terence moore, i'm going to go to you. ray lewis involved in a situation here in atlanta, a deadly outcome at a nightclub here. you say he's made a turnaround, he's a changed man. can you hear me, terence? terence moore, are you there? we'll work on getting him back. ray lewis involved in an altercation here back in 2001 at a nightclub. he was acquitted. and sadly someone died during that altercation and there were other people who were implicated in that as well. there are still people who believe ray lewis is guilty for that and should have paid the price, should have gone to jail or spent some time in prison and didn't. they still hold him responsible and they feel he should be held accountable. and there are others who feel he has paid the price, did his time and should move on. he has many critics and many supporters, in the years since the -- the 11 or 12 years since, he has turned his life over to god. you hear him speaking in press conferences speaking about god and his family. to be able to go out on a happy on a high note with his children by his side

moore. >> just picking up where we left off last time, and it has helped me with a proper report. i think the commission very much supported the social component of what this project is proposing. i think the commission also was very empathetic of the concerns of the neighborhood. now the question is how do we deal with that? let me acknowledge the architect did a great job to visualize what those questions were, which we couldn't answer last time when we had drawings in front of them. which described what could be, but we didn't quite know how that would resolve itself. i'm actually quite impressed by having two alternatives and the ability to compare it to what we looked at last time. quickly coming to the point, i would say that alternative a is for me more in keeping with the compromise which spatially leaves it open there is an 11' setback, by which landscaping an open area, that will be a relief of noise transfer relative to buildings across the area. with the issue of the fence, i would look for the zoning administrator's sanchez's guidance and the point of compromise. i am s

? >> thank you, following up on commissioner moore's comment on veteran's commons, for those of you that don't know, the address is 150 o -- odus which is where the back of the planning department is located. it did use a combination of federal tax credits, both low-income tax credits and historic preservation tax credits which commissioner moore mentioned, historic preservation tax credits are worth as tax credits, not as a deduction as a straight credit, 25% of the rehabilitation costs of the project, so it's a substantial amount coming back to -- well, i can't say developer because they're non-profit organizations but in the case where they're non-profits, it can be syndicated, i think in this case, it's maybe bank of america, i can't remember, so wells provided some other financing, so it was a really good project, the historic preservation commission did review the project and gave it its blessing and the mayor's office housing of course was involved so all around, i think it was an excellent project and good example for not only historic preservation but for affordable housing in the

sales or service. the basic need here was a bookstore. >> commissioner moore: in 2007, this project came in front of us early in my time in the commission and at that time there was a lot of opposition. ms. -- was representing the current owner; i am very interested in supporting a small business but also seeing the possible configuration or shift from one specialization into slightly associated other i ultimately supported the vcu in front of a the time. the specifics of that cu really spoke that it would be allowed to serve espresso, before that they were not allowed, espresso and associated, croissants, whatever, and continue as a place where people could come by read italian periodicals, not necessarily be as much in the bookstore but have the ability to have an espresso sit down and read. i was happy because i supported it only to go there five months later % at the time i was taking italian classes in north beach % and realize the bum of the things i thought were supposed to be there, were there. it had not realized any of the things which we had approved although there was big

. that is something that we could get back to you that i wanted to clarify that. >> thank you. >> commissioner moore? >> i like to go back to geary street corridor, a few years ago, the market was slow and large and previously a formula occupied space and the formula retail comes along and we immediately says that it needs to be filled and have the vacantcy and i think that in this area, we are much likely in the different building in a slightly different market and to have the department, also from the application, look at potentially vacant buildings of this size and talk about higher and better use would be of interest to me because as the district transforms itself and becomes the umu and takes on the more desirable qualities of the most recent plans and i would like to look at these as not as fall back positions as formula retail but potentially the next generation of innovative store or stores that we could put into them. >> commissioner, hillis? >> just, on the continuance, i mean, i, if we vote, if we vote against the continuance and we vote for the intent to deny, when is that heard next we

comment is closed. commissioner moore. >> yeah, i asked this project to be pulled off consent because i would like to engage director in a discussion about my concerns regarding signage, particularly chase signage. i know that this project would by reference fall under [speaker not understood] control in this area. however, i believe that formula retail signage, particular chase signage, so much [speaker not understood] desirable and acceptable. i'd like to use my experience of walking through chinatown particularly at this time of the year with the ambience of the street and lighting is a place of its own speaks to itself only to be seriously disturbed by the presence of a lit sign that is not only out of scale, out of color range, that youx because of its flickring quality. it is not an animated sign. it is visually disturbing. and while i understand that chinatown does not have signage control given that the signage itself is part of the ambience and a different language and colors which are inviting ask harmonizing with each other, the influx of formula retail in this area is what i

, sunset is in there. >> commissioner moore. >> i'd like to ask supervisor wiener one more time, perhaps to state concisely why one year because i still don't get it. if the cafe floor, which is in a very specific location different from the street frontages and what's back on the rest of upper market street, i'd like you to explain why it's one year. how can a business owner structure the legalization of this business which involves other things than just the legislation, operate by this just happening one year. beyond that all the questions arise again and you'll come back and we'll do it again. >> i think commissioner sugaya may have stated it in -- may have misspoke. it's not a temporary permit. the -- it will be a one-year window to come forward and apply for and obtain the permit and then at the end of the year that permit, it would become a legal nonconforming use, but they would not have to then try to get another permit. so, we have a one-year window to do it, but the permit would then continue. >> so, what you're saying contingent [speaker not understood] get the permit and all
